administration, president obama's administration, charged with this duty is the director of office of management and budget, historically that has been the case. but my concerns go deeper than that. i believe that every public official in this nation owes an absolute loyalty to the united states, to the betterment of this country and its government. and to the institutional processes that lead to the governing of america. there can be no doubt that every government official from the president on down is accountable to the institutions of our government and to the people, ultimately, without doubt the direction of o.m.b., the director of o.m.b. has such a duty. he's required to meet that duty with honor, honesty, efficiency, and responsiveness. he serves us. we don't serve him. he serves the american people. the american people send their money to washington and they expect it will be honestly and openly managed, accountable. they have every right to demand high performance from all officials, but particularly the director of the office of office of management and budget. surely there can be no h

the board? caller: absolutely, i am. as far as obama supporters, this man and this government right now, they're absolutely trying to trap us, control us, manipulate us, and drain us. host: do you blame your local government, which is the one that instituted this? or the federal government? caller: both. host: rob is a democrat in new york. i think red lights ever pretty much become yellow lights now in my experience. the number of red lights that are being blown seems to be an epidemic. it does generate revenue. the city's backs are against wall. they need different types of revenue. observing as a pedestrian and a driver, it's a good idea. host: stanley in long island, new york, independence. -- independent line. caller: good morning. i have sprayed my license plate with that stuff that you cannot read the number of the plate. host: is that legal? caller: i don't know. host: have you ever gotten pulled over from it? caller: it could be fog on the camera. host: but a police officer could read it? caller: sure. host: why don't you want the cameras to see your license plate? are you tryi
obama and vice president biden will be speaking to that group from the state dining room. no doubt they will touch on the sequester, which is still scheduled to hit this friday. if those cuts go into effect we can expect hundreds of thousands of furloughs and lay-offs plus clogged air travel and reduced education funding and unemployment benefits. the president is asking both parties to work alongside him to end the budget stalemate and he will tell governors there is work to be done. dr. joe biden and the first lady will speak at today's meeting. a surprise appearance last night at the ausc-arizona. here she is in that dress that she wore to the governors' dinner she was not actually in los angeles, but she did speak live from the diplomatic room to announce the winner for best picture, "argo." mrs. obama's office said as a movie lover she was honored to celebrate the award and the artists who inspire us. two are forming a public advocacy group advertising for action will stay clear of election activity but it will be aimed at making political and legisla

on air travel across the country. the obama administration is warning that the sequester could be devastating. >> flights to major cities like new york, chicago, san francisco and others could experience delays up to 90 minutes during peak hours. >> reporter: a high stake degrees bait with $85 billion of cuts on the line. >> i think it is posturing on both sides. >> reporter: transportation officials are saying that it could stop air-traffic controllers. in maryland the towers at five regional and national airports could close. >> these controllers provide an important function in the congested and busy airspace. >> is also possibility that tsa screeners could be furloughed. if it happens there could be lengthy delays at security checkpoints. passengers here at bwi is saying any delays greater than what they experience would be a big headache. >> someone who travels for business it is a concern. i'm in the airport two to three time as week. the last thing i need is to spread extra time. >> now if the spending cuts do go into affect. the f
to reach her. brian, over to you. >>brian: president obama has never been to israel and blew up a recent face-to-face with prime minister benjamin netanyahu. so why is he now going to visit israel on march 20? jeremiah, why now? >> the invitation was extended by president perez of israel and the prime minister asked president obama to attend during a recent phone call. so it's going to be very, very interesting. there's an awful lot of issues at play here come spring. >>brian: most people think he's going to look to jump-start talks with the palestinian authority. you think differently. you think this is going to be about iran, don't you? >> absolutely. a recent estimate came out by probably the leading national security think tank in israel that said come july of this coming summer, iran will have the capability, they would have passed that red line to build a nuclear weapon. so you can imagine sitting in that room and perhaps -- perhaps -- the prime minister of israel begins briefing the president on their plans to bomb iran, and the response from president obama would be quite interes

'm tempted to describe president obama's spending and tax ideas as small ball, but they're worse than that. they represent a conscious decision to neglect some of the most pressing issues that confront our country. you might even say it's a dereliction of duty in the battle to save america. last week, the congressional budget office projected that our gross national debt will increase from $16 trillion in 2012 to $26 trillion in 2023. now, that may seem like a long way off, but just since president obama has been president, the national debt's gone up by 55%, just in the last four years. but if you project that forward to 2023 when some of these young men and women who are working here as pages will be looking at entering the work force and looking at their futures, all they will see ahead of them is debt and a reduced standard of living. this is what lies ahead for all of us unless we embrace real spending cuts and unless we deal with the unfunded liabilities of medicare and social security. now, president obama has a secret strategy for getting our debt under control, we'd all love to he

"u.s. a today," according to a survey -- two different perspectives on the economy this morning. we are talking about sequestration, march 1 is the deadline for congress and the president to come up with something to avoid sequestration. kevin, an independent scholar, what do you think? democrats want tax increases. caller: i think they should cut the medicaid and medicare. the president has to realize he had senior citizens with fixed income and they depend on medicare and medicaid to help with their medical bills. i agree with the caller from ohio. the economy is tough already. what happens if they did not come into the station on march 1. what

environmental issues among our top priorities. as president obama stressed in his state of the union address earlier this week, there is an undeniable trend of warmer climates and a rise in the frequency of natural disasters which cause devastation across this nation. we are headed in the wrong direction, and we need serious action to protect our planet. we can fight global warming while still growing our economy. we can do it by investing in clean renewable resources like wind and solar with equipment produced right here in the united states of america. by dealing seriously with environmental issues, we can boost our economy, decrease our reliance on foreign oil and leave a better world for our children. these should be our top priorities as members of congress, as citizens and as parents and it is time these issues receive the attention that they deserve. i yield the balance of my time. the speaker pro tempore: the gentleman's time has expired. for what purpose does the gentleman from utah rise? >> mr. speaker, i rise to address the house for one minute. the speaker pro tempore: the gentle

. president obama's remarks turned the constitution on its head. he said "the right to worship freely and safely, that right was denied to sikhs in oak creek, wisconsin." the right to assemble peacefully was denied to those in oregon and moviegoers in colorado. that fundamental set of rights to life, liberty, and the pursuit of happiness or rights that were denied to college students at virginia tech and high school students in columbine an elementary school students in newtown. this is not so. except for its prohibition on slavery, the constitution only limits actions of government, not individuals. the right to peacefully assemble protect individual rights to organize, protest, and seek to change government action. that right is trivialized and missed characterized as protecting shopping and watching movies and those constitutional rights are not the source of governmental powers to enact legislation as the president suggested. in fact, just the opposite. they were included in the bill of rights because throughout history, governments have wanted to shut up those who would criticize
of president obama disbanding his jobs council, a group of business leaders who advised him on the economy. republicans were quick to seize on the news, scoffing at the white house's handling of the council and the economy overall. >> if the white house spent nearly as much time trying to actually fix the economy as it did claiming it was fixed and then finding excuses and sca scape goats when its premature announcements were false i suspected the economy would be better than it is doing here today. >> christine romans, is he right? the unemployment rate is still what, 7.9% now. >> yes, 7.9%, 157,000 jobs created in january. that's modest hiring. that is an economy that is healing still slowly but carol when you look at the end of the year, we had some revisions to the jobs creation in november and december. i want to show you the end of the year, things look stronger than we thought at the end of the year so hiring was picking up in november and december. hiring picking up enough, carol, to actually eat into the number of people who are out there still looking in the wake of the recession
. it was eventually found. the ugly: president obama once again misses the deadline to submit a budget plan. it's the fourth time in five years he's missed that deadline. the white house says the budget is late because it took until january 2 to reach a deal on the fiscal cliff. another year, no budget. >> time for your brew on this question of the day responses. earlier in the show we told you americans spend 28% of their work week on e-mail. here's what we want to know: does answering e-mails take away from your job. here are some responses. >> thank you to everyone who responded. we always appreciate that. >> "fox & friends" starts right now. >>gretchen: good morning. i'm gretchen carlson. it's tuesday, february 5, 2013. thank you for sharing your time with us today on a big news day because that standoff in the bunker is over. that child hostage safe. this morning, how the suspect died and why the f.b.i. moved in when they did. how did they do it? developing details live from the scene. >>steve: the president knows best. he says gun owners agree with him. >> we know, for example, from poll
